How to use tick in a sentence?
You think Nature is some Disney movie Nature is a killer. Nature is a bitch. It's feeding time out there 24 hours a day, every step that you take is a gamble with death. If it isn't getting hit with lightning today, it's an earthquake tomorrow or some deer tick carrying Lime disease. Either way, you're ending up on the wrong end of the food chain.
One of the things that makes Rory special is he's not a Nick Faldo-kind of personality, obsessive with the game, an incredibly hard practicer, focused 24/7, that's not his dynamic, that's not what makes him tick as a golfer, he's much more creative, much more inspirational and that's what makes him so exciting as a player. What he does off the course gives him that energy, that freshness, to play that way.
Weird, isn't it Somehow in the dead of winter when its 40 below, so cold your words just freeze in the air, you think you'll never hear a robin's song again or see a blossom on a cherry tree, when one day you wake up and bingo, light coming through the mini blinds is softened with a tick of rose and the cold morning air has lost its bite. It's spring once again, the streets are paved with mud and the hills are alive with the sound of mosquitos.

It might not tick all the boxes for everyone, but it will reassure the market, some of the 'investor strike' for the UK, where people waited for the ultimate resolution, we are seeing that disappear. People are coming off the sidelines. People are putting money to work again.
